January 2005

Bullet2 Committee meeting. The Committee met at John Whicher's house on 22 January 2005. Much of what was discussed will be published in the next edition of Pallidula. Among topics of general interest was the idea of switching the Convention to October and the Show to April from 2006 in order to maximise the additional space at Romford for the exhibits and allow more space at Napier Hall for dealers. Members' views on this proposal will be sought.
